Review:

"A marvellously gripping narrative with twists and turns of shock and poignancy that are worthy of a three-decker Victorian novel...exposes the full extent of the dysfunctional family that lay just beneath the surface of the Pankhursts' public image" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Takes all the previous works on its subject and nudges them off the shelf" ( Irish Times)

"A family saga like no other, superbly researched and profoundly stirring" ( Sunday Times)

"Move over, Mitfords, The Pankhursts demand centre stage, as women who emerged from Edwardian drapery to break the rules of British society" ( Literary Review)
